We Bought a Fixer - Kitchen Complete!

Well hi. How are you? 
 It's finally time to show off our new kitchen. Yahoo! 

When we bought this house, we knew we'd have to gut this kitchen. 
It was awkwardly crammed into the corner of a really large living/dining space.
And why was that island so damn close in?

So as you recall, we took down this half wall.........

......and closed in this window. 

Behold....The Kitchen! 

The backsplash is a mix of colored glass and marble. 
We love how it ties everything together and adds some texture to the space. 

We love the butcher block island and sit here for most meals. 

Our American Range is a thing of beauty and is awesome to cook on.
So happy to have a gas range again!   

Our Home Depot pendant lights have a nice industrial look, capped off by swanky Edison bulbs.
Not very efficient but they are oh so pretty. 

There's not a thing we'd change about this space.
We feel so lucky to have been able to create the kitchen of our dreams!
To see/read more about our home renovation go here.

Until next week! Ta-Ta.


  1. Jen! I've been reading this blog every time you post. Yesterday, we had an offer accepted on our fixer-upper. Your blog has been a great inspiration, and I hope to similarly share the renovation process for those who won't get to experience it first hand. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks Eliot. So glad to hear that you like it and that you're reading. Good luck in your own reno.....Lots of work, but it was worth it!


Thanks for chiming in! I love to hear what you have to say.
